Sugarloaf to offer “Ski & Tee Weekend” May 1-2
Sugarloaf Golf Club to open back nine for final weekend of 09/10 ski season
CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – With the snow beginning to dwindle and the grass and leaves beginning to take hold, Sugarloaf will open the back nine on the award winning Sugarloaf Golf Club for the final weekend of the 2010 ski season, May 1-2. Guests at Sugarloaf this weekend will have the unique opportunity to “Ski and Tee” – ski in the morning and play nine holes of golf in the afternoon, or vice versa.
The May 1-2 date marks one of the earliest times in the 25 year history of the Sugarloaf Golf Club that the club has been playable.
“The course has come through the winter in some of the best shape we’ve ever seen, and we thought this would be a fun and unique way to cap off what has been a great winter season,” said Brad Larsen, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sugarloaf. “It’s not often that a resort can offer lift serviced skiing and golf in the same day.”
Nine holes will be just $25 on both Saturday and Sunday for the general public, or just $10 for anyone who shows a lift ticket or New England Pass valid for that day.
Sugarloaf is currently the only ski resort still open east of Colorado, and is offering skiing and riding on 24 trails, serviced by two lifts. Spring lift tickets are just $35 for all ages through the end of the season on May 2.
This year marks the 25th anniversary for the Sugarloaf Golf Club, which has been ranked as Maine’s top course 23 times by Golf Digest, and has been named one of the top 100 public courses in the country. The back nine at Sugarloaf features the world famous “Sting of Pearls” – holes 10-15 which run along the West Branch of the Carrabassett River and feature striking vistas, elevated tee boxes, and one of New England’s most unique golf experiences.
Following the Ski and Tee Weekend the course will close again until its scheduled opening date of May 28.
